Margo Feaser loaded the emaciated 1-year-old German Shepherd into the back of her patrol car late one night in December 2009 in hopes of finding him a new owner.

The Seminole County sheriff's deputy found him while responding to a call about a dog scaring away customers from a gas station. He wasn't injured or aggressive, so Feaser took him home.
